Battle of the Somme – ‘Pals’

The ‘Pals’ battalions of World War I, comprised of men who had enlisted together in local recruiting drives, who were promised that they would be able to serve alongside their friends, colleagues and neighbours (“pals”), rather than being randomly allocated to battalions. Ironically, motivated to serve together, sadly many also died together.
